    I am in Australia and have the Lumia 1020.

    Have just downloaded the 8.1 upgrade, however I am unable to find Cortana.

    How do I activate it?

    8.1 Cyan is not sufficient to get Cortana. You will need to sign up for the developer preview, download the dev preview app and look up these forums under cortana. You will find steps to get the settings right so she can talk.

    On the other hand the official update is not far off. So you might want to wait for it.

    At 8.1, Cortana is only available with US settings. Other English-speaking countries don't get it until the first update, which will be released with the Denim firmware, or is available now through the Preview for Developers program. Depending on which country you're in, it's either in Beta or Alpha test status. US is still Beta, I think Australia is Alpha?

    Looks like 8.1.1 is rolling out ahead of Denim...

    Microsoft now rolling out Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 for Lumia 930 | Windows Phone Central

    They started with the 930 and...
    To be clear, this is still the Lumia Cyan update, and it is notLumia Denim.
